. that is looking at some democrats' perspective on the fiscal cliff. nick is in el paso, texas, a republican. what do you think about the possibility of flexibility on no taxes? caller: yes, good morning. i believe republicans are being inflexible. i don't believe the rates should go up, because then taxes would go up. i believe when president obama says taxes will go on the rich, that is bull. its taxes for everybody. you cannot bring down the debt with a $5 trillion in your accumulated over the last four years to pay it down. you need structure readjustment with the entitlements, also, with social security, medicare, medicaid, also, and, also, the tax reform. the republicans have talked about revenue coming in from growth jobs and getting the economy going. when you get the economy going, you get more money coming into the irs and treasury/ when more americans are at work, they are paying. i don't believe it -- it is , woodymr. norquist said, it is a pledge to the people. some of those senators wanting to raise -- wanting not to raise taxes, that pledge, they knew what would happen to them, they

, lady lynn is chief executive of the holding company, el rothschild, a democratic strategist and douglas is president of the american action forum and former director of the congressional budget office. i guess that means you know how to crunch numbers. lot of number crunching going on last night. but in the end, maybe you didn't really need to crunch them so much, douglas, because obama won pretty easily. >> it is one of the remarkable things that the end, the race looked like it looked a year ago, despite all the campaigning and money spent, that the polls going in were reflective of what came out. the only thing that happened was that for a month in between, there were hopes raised on the republican side because the momentum that appeared to gather hyped mitt romney. in the end, i think the president gets credit for a tremendous tactical victory. this was really a ground game in turning his voters out to the polls. it doesn't look like an whoever whelming governing mandate. >> gretchen: how does a republican, many people are going to ask -- lose against a man who has high gas prices,
